‘Mancipate Monday: JanjaWeed

Some of my favourite freedom fighters fight through music. Bob Marley was one of them, Peter Tosh was another, Taj Weekes is a third. Take a look at this vid, hold a meds and make it your responsibility everyday to EXERCISE your hard-earned liberty…strength to those still fighting for it. BLESS UP.

This animated video only hints at the gruesome story that lies behind the name but presents the issue so that those who want to know more may seek it out themselves. For many, this song and video will be the first time they will hear of the janjaweed and the devastation they have been perpetrating in Africa for nearly a decade.

Lyrics and Song: Taj Weekes
